Working in the service industry is hard work.

I feel as if I’ve worked at Seacrets for so long everything is second nature. Last week was extremely busy for dinner, and I don’t think customers realize there are eight servers coming out of one service bar. So besides waiting for drinks, your server is waiting for drinks to deliver to multiple tables with the rest of their co-workers.

At any given moment, I could have two tables that want to close out, three tables that need drink refills, one table that asks for a side of ranch, another that needs a to-go box and one that doesn’t like their drink so they send it back.

Please be patient and kind when dining at the bars and restaurants below. We all want you to have an enjoyable dining experience.
